Michael Ruppert: In Memoriam – With Carolyn Baker, Fran Shure, and Laila Selk
Michael C. Ruppert was an American author,a former Los Angeles Police Department officer, investigative journalist,political activist, and peak oil awareness advocate.
Until 2006, he published and edited From The Wilderness, a newsletter and website covering a range of topics including international politics, the C.I.A., peak oil, civil liberties, drugs, economics, corruption and the nature of the 9/11 conspiracy. He served as president of Collapse Network, Inc until he resigned in May 2012, when he gave 35 percent of his 55 percent share back to the company’s founders. He hosted The Lifeboat Hour on Progressive Radio Network until 2014. He has been described as a conspiracy theorist by numerous mainstream media outlets.
Ruppert was the author of Crossing The Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil. He was the subject of the 2009 documentary film Collapse, which was based on his book A Presidential Energy Policy and received the New York Times’ “critics pick”. In 2014, VICE featured Ruppert in a 4-part series titled Apocalypse, Man.
On November 15, 1996, then Director of Central Intelligence John Deutch visited Los Angeles’ Locke High School for a town hall meeting. At the meeting, Ruppert publicly confronted Deutch, saying that in his experience as an LAPD narcotics officer he had seen evidence of CIA complicity in drug dealing. The confrontation was handled poorly by Deutch, resulting in Deutch’s termination from the CIA.
He went on to become an investigator and journalist and established the publication From The Wilderness, a watchdog publication that exposed governmental corruption, including his experience with CIA drug dealing activities.
Ruppert is the author of Crossing The Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil,published in September 2004. Crossing The Rubicon claims that Vice President Dick Cheney, the US government, and Wall Street had a well-developed awareness of and colluded with the perpetrators of 9/11.
Numerous documentary films have featured Ruppert, including the The 911 Report You Never Saw – The Great Conspiracy, Peak Oil – Imposed by Nature, Zeitgeist: Moving Forward, The End of Suburbia, American Drug War: The Last White Hope, Collapse and Apocalypse, Man.
Ruppert correctly predicted the financial crisis in the US five years before it happened.
He has been termed a “conspiracy theorist”,to which he has said he “deals with “conspiracy fact” rather than theory.”His book Crossing the Rubicon was a “favorite among conspiracy theorists”, according the The Wall Street Journal. After writing it, and subsequently moving on to peak oil, he said “I walked away from 9/11 five years ago,” he says. “I have nothing to do with the 9/11 truth movement.”
From The Wilderness was a newsletter published from 1998 to 2006 by the media company From The Wilderness Publications. The newsletter covered political and governmental issues. It was published eleven times per year but featured weekly updates online.
As recently as 2010, Ruppert lived in Los Angeles, California and launched Collapse Network to build sustainable communities across the world.
The New York Times, in its review of Collapse, wrote “the majority of his premises are verifiable, any weakness in his argument lies in inferences so terrifying that reasonable listeners may find themselves taking his advice” and that in it, Ruppert “emerges finally as an authentic human being, sympathetic even when the film that embraces him is not.”
